Know Your Farmers
It all started when…
On our very first date Justin told me that when he was little his family raised goats...I think it was love right then and there. We both have great passion for the outdoors, animals and taking on huge projects. I grew up taking care of a slew of animals from hamsters to horses and Justin has had goats, rabbits and dogs.
When the opportunity presented itself for us to buy an 1840's Greek Revival farmhouse that was in desperate need of repair we couldn't have been more excited to tackle the project. As soon as we took ownership of the property, before the house was remotely close for us to live in we knew we wanted to start raising animals. That is when we got our first 3 pigs: Bacon, Porkchop and Miss Piggy.
A lot has happened since then - we now breed our own pigs, raising from farrow to finish and have approximately 30 pigs on farm at any given time. We have also expanded to raise pastured poultry. We hope you enjoy following along as we document all the in and outs, ups and downs and twists and turns that are sure to happen as we work on Revival Farm.
